This Forum aims to highlight the creativity of cities to answer the following questions in concrete terms: How are cities experimenting with other ways, collective, sober and respectful of ecosystems (biodiversity, etc.)? How do they support the development of new practices in housing, mobility, health or education? How do they promote new ways of consuming or producing? The speakers will focus on practical achievements developed in one of the 6 themes selected by the Biennial: Housing, Mobility, Health, Biodiversity, Education and Production.
